Re: Is the Federation a True Democracy? And How Did It Reach That Poin

What is both here and there is that Samuels wasn't contemporary to the UFP. So at most we could argue that the structure of the UFP government might be influenced by the example of the historical United Earth one. But it might just as well be that mankind took the transition from UE to UFP as an opportunity to get rid of a system it found unworkable, replacing it with something free of any and all elements of parliamentarism.
